Decisions, decisions. Is tonight the night that you log into our Cover it Live widget and spark a riveting discussion about city council matters, or do you sit down in front of WGBH to watch the four gubernatorial candidates debate? (It’s going to be moderated by CNN’s John King, if that persuades anyone.)
If you picked the former, here’s the agenda. See you at 7:00.
7:11: We’re about to start. Shout out to the group from Pushkin, Russia that’s here.
7:19: The mayor says a lot of councilors are “very excited” about the PILOT agreement made with Clark University. MOB (Mike O’Brien) says the money is “significant” when added to other money from other schools. Clancy holds the Clark item for the first item next week to use as leverage to see if similar negotiations can be started with Holy Cross. Rushton wants the other schools contacted as well. Lukes wants more in the report, including breakdown of property owned by each school and their other assets. Eddy wants Clark President David Angel to come in and accept gratitude next week.
